Revolution ccling sries, round 2 Glasgow.

We're still settling down from the incredible racing that took place over the weekend in Glasgow. The guys battled hard, won a few, lost a few but came out to race another day.

We're super proud of Dominic, Joe and Billy, plus thrilled to race with our guest riders Chris Lawless and a special thanks to Matt Rotherham who stepped in and partnered with Chris for the madison time trial to take home a very respectable 4th place.

Team Star Track currently sits in 9th place overall in the Champions league!

Bicycle Diaries: A day in the life of Billy Taylor 11/07/2017

Bicycle Diary of Billy Taylor (age 15).

Gran Fondo Hincapie... next stop Revolution Series!

Back from South Carolina where I did the Gran Fondo Hincapie, it’s a fun ride event format with a great course whether we were going up a hill or on the flat bits.

I managed to finish the 80 mile ride in around five hours and twenty minutes. I didn’t break any records, but I came to have a good time, and I did. I rode with friends, and I managed to stop at every rest stop and sample the food. I had a great day.

Since I’ve been back in New York, my focus has been training for the Revolution Series in the UK. I’m really excited to be going overseas in a couple of weeks to compete in this amazing racing series. The first race is in London on November 25th. I’ve been preparing by doing a lot of indoor training sessions to help get my leg speed up which is important when you are riding junior gears.

This past weekend I trained at T-Town… we had a Star Track team training session lead by our Coach, Gil (Gibby) Hatton. I love working with Coach Gil. He really gets me, and he always pushes me to be the best I can be.

The first event I’ll be racing during the Revolutions will be the Madison, which isn’t a race I do too often so I’ve been practicing with my training partner and friend Justin Butsavage. Justin’s a few years older than me, but he is great to train with, and I am learning a lot of great tips about Madison racing from him.

For the revolutions, I’m paired with an English guy Billy Lazenby… they’ve paired the two Billy’s together. We haven’t met yet or raced together so hopefully Billy and I get a chance to practice before the first race.

Til then I have a ton of training to log, and not enough time… Stay tuned for more insight into my final preparations for the London Revolutions!
